I don't post on the MSB often, but when I do it pertains to 8th grade localized basketball.

Why do we need to know this? Go back to 8th grade.

I could probably name all of them, but i dont think that would be prudent.

The fact that you don't have the SGS 98 team on your list is ridiculous.


How could you not include St. Jude 95 on your list?

Do you have a link to the first one you ever did? I was on one of the teams and it'd be cool to go back and see it

I'd like to go on record that eagle pride was started during my class and we even had the hand signal. I believe the made the hand signal better since I left. There's quite a few other legacies I left at that school. No way they finish that low. Top 3.

After polling a wide range of coaches, fans, and players, an all time list has been compiled of the all time CSAL 8th grade basketball teams. Without further adieu, here is the countdown in reverse order..... 5- St Alphonsus 1999: great run in 8th grade year. Led by a future state champion quarterback. One of the more gritty teams in the countdown. 4- STM 2002: Elite 8 champion and one of the more dominant teams across a 3 year span. Had a good mix of guard play, big man, and shooting. 3- St Jude 1995: possibly the most athletically gifted team in the ranking. Roster loaded with future all state performers in both football and baseball. Played well as a basketball team although this team's real talent was in other arenas. 2- St George 1997: very gifted team. Had a great mix of athletic guards, lead by one of the better athletes in CSAL history. If the guards were shut down, they also had a strong shooter and a more than serviceable big man. The knock on this team was the depth of competition in that class. This was evident in the 96 STM 8th grade tournament where SGS tried to dance with the big boys but flamed out against a very deep class of 96. 1- STM 1996: the best pure basketball team as voted on by the panel. The San Antonio Spurs of the their time. Nothing flashy. Great defense. Great shooter mixed in with other solid scores from the outside. Solid guard play, athletic bigs. Not to mention a deep bench of grown men and a heady coach that utilized his talent to win games.


You forgot STA '01-'02..greatest team to ever finish fourth place in the Elite Eight

STM 96 had some great shooters and were pretty well coached in all sports. Those kids came from a line if coaches that made STM a true sports school. The 90's were owned by STM. I'm not so sure another school has been that blessed with talent. I think St. George was the only school that even competes wholesale with STM.
